What better time than the penultimate month of the year to learn about the original inhabitants of Wisconsin – especially as November marks National Native American Heritage Month.
A Tribute to Survival, on display now at the Milwaukee Public Museum, recognizes the significant contributions Native Americans – among them the Menominee, Ojibwe (Chippewa), Potawatomi and Ho-Chunk (Winnebago) – have made, and continue to make, in Wisconsin and beyond.
This exhibit, now in its 27th year, is testament to Native Americans’ deep resilience despite attempts to assimilate and/or eradicate them from their ancestral homelands.
